The round-up: what’s open this (rescheduled) Ekka public holiday

Well, it might not have happened when it was supposed to, but it’s happening – just a few months later than expected. The Ekka didn’t take place as planned, but we are still getting a public holiday. The traditional mid-week day off has been moved to this Friday October 29, giving us one more long weekend to tide us over until the festive period. Many of Brisbane’s eateries are opening their doors on the day, so if you’re hankering for some quintessential cafe fare, top-tier restaurant dining or even a tipple or two, have a look at our list of what’s operating!
